I tried that but by the time my window gets sun it's late in the day and I can't move the tank ;; Maybe I need brighter lights.

Since beneficial bacteria are sticky and adhere to all the surface areas, in the top layer of the substrate and in the filter media-very little are in the water column. A UV light won't hurt your nitrogen cycle since they are designed to destroy things in the water column as they pass through the UV light.
